With immediate effect the following stillwaters are closed to all new arrivals:
This is due to the high risk posed by local outbreaks of KHV. We stress that none have our waters have shown any symptoms relating to the disease, this is purely a precautionary measure to protect our fishstocks.
Anglers already fishing Spinnaker and Hucklesbrook can finish their sessions. No new night tickets will be issued from this point. Anyone who has paid for a night ticket from Richard Ringwoodtackle Middleton for the coming days who is NOT YET on a water can claim a full refund. Padlock codes will be temporarily changed and signs erected at all affected venues to prevent any access.
We envisage this situation to remain for around 2 weeks. The threat from the virus remains whilst water temperatures exceed 15 degrees Celsius. Regular checks will be undertaken to monitor this.
We thank you all for your patience and understanding as we safeguard the future of our fishing and the club.
